Earth Day // April 18, 2018

With President Thomas Greene’s new goal for American River College to become a #ZEROWASTE campus, we decided to make it this year’s theme: ZERO WASTE BY 2025. Please mark your calendar and save the date and consider SHARING this event with anyone you think might be able to attend.

This year, we will be showcasing an upcycle day with students from American River College Veterans Resource Center where they will be dismantling, repairing and painting up the frames from some of our old garbage cans and inserting new panels from our Fine & Applied Arts Club to get us more student-created recycle bins for our campus.

Stop by, meet some of the artists & see the story of these student created public art pieces.We’ll also have ARC Departments, local vendors & .orgs with green things to share.

You can find photos from last year’s Earth Day Celebration in the photo albums on our Facebook page. Here are the links from previous Earth Day celebration at ARC:

We’ll also be celebrating Arbor Day by planting another tree with the Grounds Department mid-day, so if you have tree questions, bring them!
